Navy Shares Community Update on Shipyard Cleanup Efforts

24 February 2023
The Navy is committed to updating the public about environmental cleanup efforts at former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard (HPNS). Here is a summary of the Navy’s latest cleanup and outreach progress at HPNS:
• Community Resources: The Navy is in the process of hiring a new HPNS environmental coordinator and looks forward to introducing them to the community as soon as possible. Community updates continue to be shared via the HPNS website and email newsletters. If you have any questions or input on the Navy’s public outreach to the community, please send an email to or leave a message on the HPNS Info Line at (415) 295-4742.

• Five-Year Review (FYR): The Navy is required to evaluate the protectiveness of cleanup remedies in place at HPNS every five years. The draft FYR for HPNS will be released by the Navy in Fall 2023 and announced publicly. It will include an evaluation of the potential effects of sea level rise and associated groundwater elevation changes on the remedies currently in place. Subscribe to receive alerts.

• Community Involvement Plan (CIP): The Navy assesses the effectiveness of its community outreach efforts every two years. The latest CIP, published in November 2022, provides an update to the methods the Navy will use to engage the community, provide information, and involve the public at HPNS. The CIP is available on the Navy’s website. The plan includes a site overview, community profile (with recent survey questions and results), the community involvement action plan, and additional information and resources for the community.

• Recap on Community Outreach in 2022: The Navy’s outreach program provides opportunities for community involvement in different formats. In 2022, the Navy participated in meetings with local community groups – including the Hunters Point Shipyard Citizens Advisory Committee (latest presentation available here), the Bayview Citizens Advisory Committee, local homeowner groups, and local artist tenants – to share updates on the cleanup program at Hunters Point. The Navy continued to host informational booths at both Shipyard Artists Open Studios events, and a community technical advisor was available to members of the community to answer radiological health and safety questions throughout the year. Additionally, the Navy provided information by email to more than 1,000 subscribers, through the Navy’s website, periodic postal mailings by post, and outreach to 50 local groups and organizations.
